Barman serving drinks


The Railway Inn has been at the heart of Sandford village for over 140 years. This beautifully restored traditional country pub is the ideal escape for expertly crafted food and cider pairings.

The Thatchers Cider owned pub is beautifully decorated with artefacts and photos that depict the pub’s cider-making heritage. Treat yourself to a delicious meal in the restaurant, have a snack in the cosy bar, or simply enjoy a pint of cider.

The enthusiastic front-of-house team is happy to go the extra mile to ensure that every guest has a memorable visit. The food served features regional and seasonal ingredients from local producers, with a strong emphasis on great quality, great taste and sensible prices. The drinks menu is also carefully chosen, with a full range of ciders from Thatchers, as well as plenty of beers, wine and soft drinks.

The Railway benefits from being close to the Strawberry Line, a popular footpath with walkers and cyclists. The pub serves a welcome break to those venturing along it.

Dogs are very much welcome, and they are keen to let their owners know this through complimentary dog treats! Although since we know this doesn’t suit everyone, we do keep the formal restaurant area dog free.
